I miss the specific knowledge checks from 3.5 in the 5th edition.
In my campaign, it is often important to know something about minor and major celebrities of the time (queens, kings, dukes, wandering druids etc.). What's the best skill check to determine whether a character has heard or knows simple facts about them?
I've been using History (Int) so far for royal and noble celebrities, since I'm assuming those NPCs will show up in the history books of my world in a century.
But that feels quite makeshift, especially when they want to know about this wandering druid who is quite well-known amongst the lowly populace, but who will never end up in any history book whatsoever.
Knowing about that druid feels more like a wisdom check, but there is no associated skill check that vaguely goes in that direction. Should I go with a plain Wisdom check and add Advantage whenever a character has lived in an area that the wandering druid used to visit often? Should I do the same for kings and queens?
